These grant an additional number of dots to be used on skills or merits. One may buy off said flaws, at the cost of the traits purchased with them. (used to buy Resources 1-3 for example, would cost 12 xp to buy off.)
NOTE: Extra Merit dots may be used to buy higher Power Stats, at the standard cost of 3 dots per point. Buying off that flaw costs what purchasing that level with XP would cost.
